SD! Tapings Tonight, Hardy/WWE Update, Lots More

Ryan Clark


As reported earlier, Bobby Lashley’s shoulder injury is believed to be a serious torn rotator cuff. Lashley has had shoulder problems since before WrestleMania and had it checked out shortly after Backlash in April. He reportedly aggravated the injury over the weekend. TV was rewritten last night to do the injury angle. If it is determined tomorrow after a meeting with Dr. James Andrews that he will require surgery, he could be out until January.

Jeff Hardy was reportedly sent home by WWE last night at the Raw taping in Tucson. There are no other details at this time. His scheduled program with Umaga has now been dropped and the company looks to have turned Umaga babyface after what they did last night with Santino Marella.

Marcus Cor Von isn’t scheduled to be at tonight’s Smackdown/ECW tapings in Phoenix. Plans can always change, but he wasn’t scheduled to be there tonight as of a few days ago.

WWE will be taping Friday Night Smackdown and ECW on Sci Fi tonight in Phoenix, Arizona. Nothing has been confirmed for tonight’s Smackdown taping according to the current WWE.com preview. Storylines hyped include the fallout from Batista issuing a challenge to World Heavyweight Champion The Great Khali last week and attacking him, WWE Cruiserweight Champion Hornswoggle overcoming Jamie Noble again and more between WWE U.S. Champion MVP and Matt Hardy. Nothing has been confirmed for tonight’s live broadcast of ECW on Sci Fi either according to the latest online preview. Storylines hyped include ECW Champion John Morrison losing a tag team match along with Elijah Burke against CM Punk and Tommy Dreamer last week and if time is running out on his championship reign and if Kevin Thorn has lost a step losing to Stevie Richards last week.
